[ laughter ] i checked it out. it was written by robert smigel, who does triumph, and bob odenkirk. >> that was an amazing experience. >> jimmy: how was that? >> wow, i mean, i was terrified. i'd never done anything like that before, live tv. i came in with all of these ideas that i thought were brilliant, and then lorne michaels says, "no, that's not how it's done." and then all the comedians are giving me the suggestions of what i should do. and i said, "i guess it's your way or the highway, right?" he said, "that's right." and then al franken said to me, "i've seen a million guys like you, nick. a million guys." whatever that meant. [ laughter ] and then i remember that john lovett said, "don't worry about it, nick, because george harrison was here and he was going to be a musical guest. and during the rehearsal, he was
practicing something on the piano and then al franken opened the door and said, 'you know what, mr. harrison? some of us are trying to work here!'" [ laughter ] and now he's a u.s. senator. connect those dots. >> jimmy: he is, right? i heard that story. he went out to do a bit, and then actually george harrison stopped playing. >> that's right. >> jimmy: and everyone was bummed out. >> he shut the lid on the piano and walked away. >> jimmy: you had so many iconic roles. when you walk around the street, do people just yell out your lines? your classic lines? >> well, it sort of depends upon the generation, you know, or the decade. like, people used to say to me, "put the bunny back in the box" from "con air." and then going back from there, i would get, "son, you have a panty on your head" from "raising arizona." >> jimmy: absolutely. >> and then going back from there, "snap out of it" from "moonstruck." that was a pretty big one. [ applause ] >> jimmy: "hey, snap out of it!" i love that when people yell. i went to a yankee game once with -- i sat next to jack nicholson.
>> oh, wonderful. >> jimmy: yeah. and people kept yelling, "you can't handle the truth, right, jack?" he's like, "absolutely, that's right." [ laughter ] for two hours. >> how did he take it, though? >> jimmy: he was cool. he was so used to it. he was just like, "whatever." they were yelling, "here's johnny!" he's like, "absolutely, absolutely." [ laughter ] >> i just love jack. i'll tell you, i was his date to the oscars once. and we were riding in a car together. and i said, "jack, you were great as the joker. you were just great as the joker. but if i would have done it, i would have played him gay." and he said, "well, what do you mean?" i said, "because i know the joker is in love with batman." and he says, "you know, nick, you've got a point there." >> jimmy: you would of played him gay? i got cracker jacks next to him. and he leaned over to me, he goes, "did you get the prize yet?" [ laughter ] i was nervous. i pulled out the prize. it was a sticker of a picture of a snake on it. he goes, "when i was a kid, we used to get metal things like tin whistles and stuff like that. now you get a picture of a [ bleep ] snake." [ laughter ]
sorry to curse like that, but he wasn't looking at me when he said it. i almost gave him a standing ovation. i was like, "that's perfect." >> perfect delivery. >> jimmy: exactly, perfect delivery. do you remember the first time you ever acted, ever got into character or roles? >> i think the first time i ever really committed to a role was when i was getting my twinkie stolen from my brown paper lunch sack in fourth grade. the bag that -- my mother would put the twinkies in the lunch bag, and this bully would pull them out and steal them from me and beat me up. and i remember i went home thinking i can't get beaten up on the bus anymore. and i decided to dress up in my older brother's cowboy boots, and i slicked back my hair and put on these sunglasses, and i was chewing gum. and looked at this cartridge of razor blades called wilkinson. i said, "my name is roy wilkinson. i'm nicky coppola's cousin." and i started committing to it. and i went on the bus, and i said, "this is who i am. leave my cousin alone." the guy was looking at me like, "okay, this is either nicky coppola or it isn't, but something's wrong with him." [ laughter ] and he never picked on me again after that. >> jimmy: you got your twinkies after that. >> that's right.
i always got to keep my twinkie in my lunch bag. but i think at that point i thought maybe i can do this. >> jimmy: i might have a career in acting. and you shot a lot of this movie in new york city. >> and every time i make a movie in new york city, just something amazing happens. i've done a few movies here now. and this time, we were in time squares driving around in a 1934 rolls royce phantom, which looked incredible and it was a real head-turner. everybody was looking at the car. and it was exciting. it was just a great time. it was a great shoot. >> jimmy: your brother is a deejay here. >> the cope, mark coppola. he's a deejay. he goes by the cope. >> jimmy: do you have other names? >> no, he was always mark coppola. then i remember he had a pirate radio station when i was a boy. and that was the first time i got an introduction to classical music. it was this amazing -- he just would hijack the air waves and play "across the universe" by john lennon. i must have been like 6 or 7. i was just transported by it. i thought it was so beautiful. >> jimmy: where did he have it
out of? >> he had it out of his garage. and he was hijacking airwaves out of his garage. it was very, very badass. >> jimmy: and when he was arrested, where were you? >> he never got arrested, thankfully. now he's the cope, and he's been in new york for years. >> jimmy: and you always get your new music from him, right? >> well, i ask him questions, and he gives me answers about different things. i can ask him a question about any band and he'll know the answer and make suggestions. so, he's always been very helpful with me. >> jimmy: the radio he's on now, he's on q-104. >> that's right. >> jimmy: classic rock? >> that's right. >> jimmy: he must me excited, squeeze is on tonight. >> listen, "tempted" is one of my favorite songs. >> jimmy: i love "tempted." >> i love that song. >> jimmy: they're not doing "tempted" tonight. >> right.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: i like that song because they kind of just list things. >> it's the ultimate liberation song if you've had your heart broken. that and "free bird." [ laughter ] >> jimmy: absolutely. see, i didn't take it that way. i just thought it was a list of
stuff. he's like -- ♪ i've got my sharpie my mugs, my keyboard on my desk my mouse pad -- ♪ he's just naming things.
